HUB Security Reports Fiscal 2022 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update

TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HUB Security (NASDAQ: HUBC), a developer of Confidential Computing cybersecurity solutions and services ("HUB Security" or the "Company"), today announced it has filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

The Company plans to work expeditiously to report its first half results for the period ended June 30, 2023. Subsequently, the Company looks forward to holding a conference call to discuss historical events, current status, and go-forward outlook. Meanwhile, the Company continues its strategy, daily operations, and mission to disrupt the market with its confidential computing platform.

As previously disclosed, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed a Special Committee of Independent Directors (the “Special Committee”) to oversee an internal investigation (the “Internal Investigation”) in order to review certain allegations of misappropriation of Company funds and other potential fraudulent actions regarding the use of Company funds by a former senior officer of the Company. The Special Committee placed a heavy emphasis on being thorough and judicious in uncovering any malfeasance, which required multiple and time-consuming audits, including a forensic audit, to ensure any and all malfeasance was uncovered.

During the course of the Internal Investigation, the Special Committee, together with its outside advisers, believed that it found sufficient evidence to support a determination that Mr. Eyal Moshe, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer and President of U.S. operations and former Board member misappropriated a total of approximately NIS 2 million (approximately $582 thousand) for personal use. The employment of Eyal Moshe, was terminated effective July 24, 2023 for cause in connection with these determinations by the Special Committee.  Additionally, Mr. Moshe resigned from the Company’s Board of Directors on August 15, 2023.

“Since being appointed as CEO, we have commenced a complete review of all internal controls and refined our go-to-market and R&D teams. We are leveraging the breadth of our customer base and bundling cyber solutions with our confidential computing platform to create a ‘One HUB’ strategy,” Uzi Moskovich, Chief Executive Officer of HUB Security. “The Board has directed the Company’s management to implement significant remedial measures to ensure these issues are thoroughly resolved. HUB Security’s management team is committed to transparency, accountability, operational rigor and integrity, which, when coupled with the remedial measures we are implementing, will hopefully allow the entire HUB Security organization to move forward focused on delivering long-term growth and value creation. Finally, we look forward to updating the investment community on the solid strides we have made internally and the traction our products are having in the market.”

Recent Key Highlights

  • As of December 31, 2022, our backlog estimates consisted of approximately $39 million in customer contracts, and we had an estimated $103 million in pipeline, consisting of customer contracts in various stages of negotiation and initial revenue indications from potential customers that have not been contractually committed.
  • HUB Security and Getronics announced a global strategic partnership and a 1.3 million Euro contract with a multination company. Getronics, a leading provider of workplace, cloud, IoT, and managed service cybersecurity solutions has partnered with HUB Security to combine HUB Security's industry-leading cyber risk management technology and services with Getronics' world-class technology solutions.
  • HUB Security has partnered with Virtual I Technologies to create unique cyber risk management solution that seeks to allow insurance carriers and reinsurers to effectively evaluate, price and underwrite cyber insurance policies. The solution provides insurers with a secure file vault that greatly reduces the chances of being attacked and minimizes potential damage due to lost or corrupted data. The platform, called “HUB Secure File Vault” is licensed as a Platform-as-a-Service and provides major elements of protection such as making it much harder for malware to get into client systems, if malware does gain entry, it is detected in milliseconds, and cleaned and finally, if malware attempts to steal private information, the transfer of data is blocked.

Fiscal 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: $79.7 million.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit for the full year of 2022 was $6.4 million.
  • Operating Expenses: Operating expenses for the full year of 2022 was $(86.0) million, including $26 million of impairments, $15.8 million of SPAC transaction costs, $582 thousand of misappropriated expenses and $7.8 million of depreciation and amortization.
  • Operating (Loss): Operating loss for the full year of 2022 was $(79.5) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA loss for the full year of 2022 was $(21.1) million.
  • Operating Cash Flow: Operating Cash Flow for the full year of 2022 was $(23.4) million.
  • Cash Flow and Cash Equivalents: As of December 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and deposits in the amount of $5.6 million.


In the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company recorded non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets in the amount of $23.4 million, due primarily to macroeconomic factors such as higher cost of capital, the overall increase in financing costs due to the liquidity pressure which are contributing to reduced forecasted revenues, lower operating margins, and reduced expectations for future cash flows, as well as $8.7 million full impairment of the acquisition of Legacy Technologies since no binding purchase orders had been signed and lack of progress.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures.

This press release and the accompanying tables contain non-IFRS financial measures. HUB Security believes that these non-IFRS financial measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to HUB Security’s financial condition and results of operations. HUB Security’s management uses non-IFRS measures to compare HUB Security’s performance to that of prior periods, for trend analysis and for budgeting and planning purposes. The non-IFRS financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with IFRS, and may be different from similarly-titled non-IFRS measures used by other companies.

HUB Security defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss as adjusted for income taxes, finance income, finance expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairments, share-based compensation expense, SPAC transaction cost and other one-time costs.  Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by management and HUB Security’s board of directors to assess its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in HUB Security’s industry. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate directly to the performance of the underlying business.

Adjusted EBITDA is not an IFRS measure of HUB Security’s financial performance or liquidity and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss as a measure of financial performance, as alternatives to cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or as alternatives to any other performance measure derived in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that HUB Security’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or other items.

Non-IFRS financial measures may differ materially from the Non-IFRS financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliation between results on a IFRS and Non-IFRS basis is provided in a table at the end of this release. A reconciliation of the adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding IFRS measure (net loss) is not available on a forward-looking basis due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability and significance of the amounts of share-based compensation expense, among others. Accordingly, a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding IFRS measures for future periods is not available without unreasonable effort.
